Pan Eighty Tears, Jle In Spry and
Active Has a War HMor That
Dn(e lliu-k to Mcxtcnn War Ship
wrecked Wa'.Io a Sailor.
A very interesting character Is "51. S.
Gurdane, a veteran of the civil war,
who attended the recent reunion In
this city. Mr. Gurdane's home is In
Pendleton, and he has once been
elected to the state legislature from
I'matlUa county. He is 84 years of
age. but looks not a day over TO. He
Joined the navy In 1846 and served for
five years, after having spent many
years on the sea. While a sailor he
was twice shipwrecked, upon one oc
casion being In the water for two
nights before being rescued. When
the war broke out Mr. Gurdane Joint!
the 14th Wisconsin Infantry, and was
l . hHU ff On.l.t AHttnh m
In the siege of Vlckaburg, and went
with Sherman "from Atlanta to the
sea." At Shlloh he received a wound
In the right leg, and at Vlcksburg lost
an eye and was shot through the neck,
but was not mustered out until the
close of the war. Although his life
has been thrown In rough places, Mr.
Gurdane Is now a faithful Christian
and an earnest worker In the church
of which he Is a member. His mind
Is filled with beautiful sentiments and
he loves to tell them to his friends.
He Is still hale and hearty, In full pos
session of his faculties, and bids fair
to pass the century milestone before
blvouacing for the last time.
STRANGER ACTS STRANGELY.
Pendleton Hullrond Employes Keep
Clow Wuleli on Alleged "Kpotnr."
A modest looking stranger, claim
ing to be a retired merchant of a
small Michigan town, has created in
tense Interest among O- R. & N. rail
way employes In this city during the
past week, by his deep Interest In the
affairs of the railroad company when
the trains are in the yards here, says
the Pendleton East Oregonlan.
From his watchfulness and regular
visits to the depot at the exact time at
which passenger trains are due, has
aroused suspicions of all the em
ployes at this place and they feel sure
that he,ls a "spotter" on duty In the
guise of a retired capitalist.
The secret service department of all
the big railroad companies malntnln
a regular force of detectives to watch
dlffedent branches of the department,
and the detectives pose as all sorts of
capitalists, tourists and sightseers and
often escapo detection for months.
However, the gentleman who has
haunted the O. It. & N. depot at train
time for the past three weeks has not
escaped onil for the past two weeks,
every employe In the service of the
company here has hnd the "spotter"
"spotted," they think.
